Global Disaster Relief

Extreme disasters are striking close to home in the U.S. and around the world this year.  From now until the end of November 2017, all donations to our Disaster Relief Fund will support our missions for those impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria in the United States; and our international disaster aid mission for the earthquake in Mexico.

So many people are suffering and in distress after major catastrophes, and they desperately need our love and support. Please #JoinHands with us to provide vital immediate aid that will help restore hope as they struggle to recover.

Our #LoveSaves.

We started with 30 women who saved 2 cents daily while making a vow to help others.

Over 50 years ago, housewives inspired by Master Cheng Yen’s vow to serve others joined her mission of love by donating from their humble grocery fund.



By giving every day, we can create a mighty ocean of love.

Giving awakens love and kindness in our hearts and casts an infinite ripple of good across the world. Let’s do it daily.

From a recipient of blessings, become the giver.

We can all discover aspects of our lives to be grateful for. Let’s turn gratitude to generosity, because everyone has the capacity to give.




By giving, we have the power to change the world.
